    • 12. Brainstorming Rules Defer judgment. There are no bad ideas at this point. There will be plenty of time to narrow them down later. Encourage wild ideas. Even if an idea doesn’t seem realistic, it may spark a great idea for someone else. Build on the ideas of others. Think “and” rather than “but.” Stay focused on topic. To get more out of your session, keep your brainstorm question in sight. One conversation at a time. All ideas need to be heard, so that they may be built upon. Be visual. Draw your ideas, as opposed to just writing them down. Stick figures and simple sketches can say more than many words. Go for quantity. Set an outrageous goal—then surpass it. The best way to find one good idea is to come up with lots of ideas. From Design Thinking for Educators, by Riverdale Country School and IDEO
